St. Albans Secondary College is a 7-12 secondary school located at St Albans, Victoria, Australia, in Melbourne's western suburbs. It is recognised for its academic excellence, strong social and cultural values and high university admission rates.

History[edit]

The school was established in 1956. It has close to a thousand students and one hundred teachers. The Principal since 2006 is Kerrie Dowsley.

The School played host to legendary Australian hard-rock band AC/DC on 3 March 1976 in the School Hall. Footage of the songs T.N.T. and School Days can be found on the Two Disk Edition of Plug Me In. More footage of songs include It's a Long Way to the Top and She's Got Balls on the Three Disk Edition of Plug Me In. Other than that, it has also been announced that it will be an ambassador of Australian tourism. The school is known for its cultural diversity and aims to produce students who will become high achievers in society. The annual soccer match between the year 11 and 12s are a great example of the lively festivities that occur at the school. In 2014, due to the misbehaviour of several year 12 students, the year 11s were declared winners of Old Trafford Cup.
